When is Cruella free on Disney Plus? Let’s get the release date of the 2021 movie explained and consider when it’s available to subscribers.

Over the years, Disney has gone back through some of their most iconic titles and reimagined them in live-action/CGI.

These include the likes of The Jungle Book, The Lion King, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast.

Audiences will remember that there has already been a live-action take on the beloved 101 Dalmatians, with Glenn Close starring as the villainous Cruella de Vil. However, it’s now Emma Stone’s chance to portray the character in a curious origin story.

Directed by Craig Gillespie, Cruella blends genres to sculpt a new vision for the titular fashion designer, and the film has earned praise for its performances, costume design, and more.

Audiences are eager to check it out. So, when is Cruella free on Disney Plus?
